Hotel Angeline compiled by Garth Stein came from me to me because sometimes you just have to treat yourself.
How to resist a novel written in short chapters by 36 different authors live onstage? Thank goodness I don't have to resist because it is incredibly intriguing to me.
Amour Provence by Constance Leisure came from me to me because sometimes you just have to treat yourself.
A novel set in Provence about the inhabitants of two small villages ranging from the end of WWII to present day? What isn't appealing about this?!
Xenophobe's Guide to the English by Antony Miall came from me to me because sometimes you just have to treat yourself.
I really ordered this one because I wanted an option for a book with a title starting with X but I am really looking forward to reading what should be a short, humorous read.
The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey came from Algonquin.
Newly out on paperback, I have always been intrigued by the premise of this book: during the illness the author became fascinated watching a wild snail on her nightstand. I can't wait to read her ruminations on this tiny creature.
